9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice park, helpfull staff, good restaurant, fantastic owner who is eager to share his knowledge about mayas.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location and excellent staff.
7.0 Good
Pros: Sizeable room, good location, welcoming & helpful staff
Cons: Everything needed a bit of TLC & modernisation (of course whilst retaining its quirky charm)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Terrific place to stay. Everything was wonderful, private, secluded, and beautiful. Loved the natural beauty of the property and the rooms were perfectly decorated and very comfortable. All of the staff were top notch, but Gilberto and Misaell were exceptional. The owner is very personable and knowledgeable about the area - took time to talk with guests about the property and its history. Our flight was canceled and they arranged a driver for us for a 10 hour trip. Can’t say enough good things about the property and the people there. Thank you for a wonderful experience! And thank you, Sergio, for that drive to Chichen Itza!
Cons: That we only booked 2 days here. If you are there for the ruins, book an extra day just to hang out on the property. They will take excellent care of you.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Every thing about this place was great and even the owner who told us lots about Mayan history
7.0 Good
Cons: Breakfast was inadequate and excessively sugary. No protein, only fruit and sweetbread. No option of a healthy breakfast or a substantial breakfast. The least satisfactory breakfast experience of a three week tour of Mexico.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Courteous staff — proactive and helpful but discreet. Helpful owner, excellent restaurant with varied menu. Beautiful pool and grounds.
Cons: Liked everything.
7.0 Good
Pros: One of the very best, swimming pools "in nature" one could ever imagine! several beautiful pools situated in a well planned but natural looking jungle, we heard the howler monkey family and saw many birds! The main welcome structure is a huge Mayan sort of "tower" of reeds and bamboo. The mattress was excellent! my friend and I shared it and it was perfect for the two of use. The shower was BIG and had tons of great hot water and water pressure. Our large room had its own terrace with oversize chairs. It was super super quiet and there are only a few rooms here so it was a restful place to stay. The owner came to talk to us each day at our table and is passionate about the local indigenous culture and monuments. We loved the handmade soap in the bathroom and that a hairdryer was already there we did not have to ask for it. Sparkling clean! The natural part of the premises was so very beautiful! There were some really interesting old woven pieces as the artwork in our room and in the dining and reception that were very nicely chosen, beautiful, ceramics and such. The owner being both German and Italian spoke many languages and the dinner menu included cuisine from these places. We loved the dumplings and ordered them twice at dinner. Very ample breakfast.
Cons: There was one waiter who acted in an exaggerated way in order to ingratiate himself to us and actually stood at our table the last day saying that "this was his last shift" and hint hint we needed to leave him a tip. This was unpleasant. The AC unit when in high was very noisy. The light switches were really confusing and the room was overlit: also the fixtures themselves were all of different style types which broke the overall aesthetic in this hotel. The food was "OK" but a bit expensive we felt. There were no screens so you did not have an option to sleep in the normal night temperature. We did see in the photos when we booked that the place was kind of a Palenque "wonderland" in that there is a fake Palenque style tower on the premises and that the buildings are ornamented heavily with sculpted ornament. Some people might really love this, but as artists we found it a bit kitsch. Also the furniture in general was dark, very heavy in look and "Tiki" in flavor and seemed the size for very tall men, not for women of 5' in height: our bathroom sink was almost at shoulder height.
Hotel Paraso Inn - Palenque - Bedroom

9.4 Excellent (158 reviews)
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Hotel Paraso Inn in Palenque, you'll be in a national park, within a 5-minute drive of Aluxes Eco Park and Museo de Sitio Palenque. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and a water dispenser.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location and the people are amazing. This place has HEART and you can feel it! Lots of restaurants close by and palenque archeological sight is super close! I actually enjoyed the energy better than Palenque itself. Carlos was even so nice to get me fresh cacao beans from the marker which I had been looking for everywhere in mexico (and surprisingly hard to find). Also the breakfast is amazing and I booked a last minute massage which was in this magical location. Would stay again!
Cons: I like to sleep with my windows open instead of airconditioning or fan. Because there is no screen that was a bit hard. Perhaps an idea for the future :-)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super host and everything was perfect. We liked it very mutch and recomend it for everybudy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a so called auto motel where you park you car in a garage from where you directly step into your room. Our room was spacious with a kingsize bed, jacuzzi, lounge chair and a fridge. Wifi and A/C worked well. The jacuzzi/shower and bedroom is basically in the same space so that is something to take into account if you are travelling with a friend or anyone else than your partner. The hotel has everything you need but the real reason you should stay there is to meet Carlos the owner. He has decades of experience in hospitality and knows exactly what he is doing. He is creating a traveller's haven really close to Palenque. I especially loved the tropical garden and breakfast area (which is super tasty by the way). Because of the low season discount we received Hotel Paraiso Inn had the highest price-quality ratio of all the hotels we stayed in during our 4 week trip in Mexico.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice, big and clean rooms, ideal if you're travelling by car, and a great breakfast. But the best thing was Carlos' incredible hospitality!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Carlos the owner - very charming man who has put a lot of love into this place The breakfast - great coffee, unusual, very fresh sweet bread and the BEST fruit of our entire trip The bed - very large and comfortable Jungle setting
Cons: The water pressure in the shower in the evening was non existent Bit out of town. I was worried about driving back into town for dinner at night, but it was fine
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We liked pretty much everything! Yes. The garden, the remote location in nature, sounds of the jungles and animals around, super friendly and helpful staff, clean room and comfy bed! We also upgraded our room to the one that has a jacuzzi inside, enjoyed it so much. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a quiet place with great service and lots of privacy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Carlos has almost 30 years of hospitality experience and you can feel it from the second you arrive at this cute, jungle-surrounded guesthouse. We didn’t feel like it was a touristy hotel, more of a family run, extremely clean and very neat apartment far away from civilisation. Definitely a great choice for nature lovers and peace seekers.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was just great for us! Carlos was super friendly and helpful. He showed us everything and you could really feel how much passion he has for the amazing area around the hotel. Also the room was really nice and clean. The Breakfast was a good start in the day, especially the regional fruits. Thanks for the good time and kind regards. Elisa and Mirko
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Carlos was awaiting us when we arrived after an 7 hour drive from San Cristobal. And so were the torches and his assistant Trinidad. He showed us the garage and the apartment, which is perfectly clean and complete. In the morning we enjoyed breakfast in the garden, with kolibries and butterflies flying by while we sat down and relaxed. The location is perfect for visiting the ruins and Aluxes which makes a great day in Palenque. I would advise to visit by car, as it’s not located in the centre. But honestly, the centre is nothing much and the surroundings are beautiful and peaceful! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again!
Cons: What’s not to like? Paraiso inn was just perfect for us!
4.0 Okay
Cons: un hotel mediocre
Hotel Chablis Palenque - Palenque - Bedroom

Featured amenities include express check-out, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Best location in town and kept immaculately clean. Great communication from the staff and well organised tours.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was nice and clean, with all facilities needed. The restaurant on site has good food as well.
Cons: The only part we didn’t like was the tour we booked with the hotel. The tour company was called Mayatur. In the morning tour we went to the pyramid, but they didn’t tell us the tour guide was not included in the total cost, and the tour guide (Victor) didn’t tell us the price upfront either. We were totally ripped off and had to pay $70 CAD per person for a 2 hour tour, which was ridiculous. In the afternoon, we went on a tour to Misol Ha and Agua Azul. However, the driver took one hour to pick up people along the way, and another hour on the way back to get people transported to other cars. A lot of time was wasted. We do not recommend signing up these tours with the hotel at all.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place for staying in Palenque Town. Very comfortable room and bed, and a good shower. Great in-house restaurant!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff is extremely friendly and the place is very clean.
Cons: Our balcony looked over the car park.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place in a great location. Quite location close enough to the action to walk to everything but not in the noise of the main streets.
Overview Reviews
Chan-kahs landscape contains beautiful gardens rich in colorful vegetation across 42 hectares deep in its rainforest with amazing swimming pool lagoon type. Surrounded by the natural beauties, of the state of Chiapas. our facilities are not only located on the gate to the Lacandona jungle, but also this resort is only a few minutes away from the main entrance to one the most important ancient Maya cities on earth.
7.9 Good
Pros: Nice setting in the jungle, restaurant is good, the hotel has an arrangement with a travel agency to book trips around palenque
Cons: Service can be improved
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful grounds, comfortable beds, good food, convenient to ruins, good wifi, nice pools.
7.9 Good
Pros: The property is beautiful. The staff was very nice. The food is not good. The toilet in our room made an awful nose when you flushed.
5.4 Okay
Pros: NA
Cons: MANY THINGS. RESTAURANTE WAS THE ONLY REALY GOOD
4.2 Okay
Pros: Looks good from the outside
Cons: It may look good on the outside but for us it was a great disappointment in many ways. Above all the food is terrible and since the hotel is located quite outside everything else you kind of depend on it. Furthermore the beds are quite uncomfortable and its super noisy in the morning so it’s difficult to sleep. The pool looks nice but there are way to few chairs to find a place because it’s all occupied pretty soon. The laundry service was the greatest impudence. They charged us 80 Euros (1700 MXN)!! for one laundry service (normally 100-150 pesos in Mexican hotels) For us our stay at Chan Kah was the greatest disappointment and we would definitely not recommend it at all!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: This resort is amazing. We really loved it here.
7.0 Good
Pros: The jungle setting was fun and the Pool area is great.
Cons: Beds were hard.
5.0 Okay
Pros: This hotel is let down by the rooms. They are nothing more than very basic cabins. There is no WiFi in the rooms, no facility for coffee, no fridge or minibar. The bed is hard and the pillows solid. The shower is a dingy concrete cubicle, the towels skimpy. There is no privacy unless you keep curtains closed at all times. The decor is cheap and gaudy, with plastic chairs. The restaurant is mediocre, they offer adequate international cuisine, but cannot provide a cup of black tea anywhere on site. Fortunately I took my own teabags, typical Brit abroad, and was charged £3 at the onsite Starbucks for a cup of boiling water. Inexcusable. For a better restaurant walk 15 minutes along the road to El Bajlum This is such a shame as the pool is fabulous, the tropical landscaping is lovely, and the layout all well designed. The staff are wonderful, really kind, friendly and helpful, and I feel sad for them that I have to complain about what the top management provide.
Cons: This could be a lovely hotel if they made the rooms more comfortable and improved their facilities. And how hard it is to provide black tea?

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Bed, staff, the river
Cons: view from the room (construction site)
6.3 Good
Pros: its next to the arch. site the Forest
Cons: no hair dryer (4*!!) the staff could hardly speak english the natural pool looked quite good but very difficult to go in the other pool was too small (3 children were playing in it)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Pool was clean and big, staff was attentive and restaurant amazing; especially the breakfast buffet.
Cons: Internet signal was very weak, almost non existent
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The swimming pool is great next to the jungle (you can see monkeys). The view from the restaurant over the balneario is really nice. 10minutes by car from the archeological site.
Cons: The beds are not very comfortable. The small patio of our room was not very clean and with no chairs therefore quite unusable. No mosquito net.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location on the river was wonderful. Swimming in the river was a delight. The staff was really great and super helpful the whole time. The location was great too enjoyed our stay.
7.1 Good
Pros: If you need a break between bus travel, the Nututum is a very relaxing hotel with a nature pool for swimming. You even get a massage and feel fresh to travel further. Breakfast has many options.
Cons: It is outside, so you need a taxi all the time.
4.0 Okay
Pros: Restaurant food was good and the restaurant staff were excellent.
Cons: Extremely loud music playing both evenings we stayed, the music could be heard across the whole of the premises and the windows in our bathroom we're stuck open so it was very loud in our room. The first night they turned off the music around 9pm but the second night it continued until at least 11pm. On top of this the hotel accommodates large groups, making plenty of noise until late at night, screaming and partying. There are reviews talking about how relaxing this hotel is, and hearing the local wildlife. This was not our experience at all as the loud music prevented us from relaxing and we didn't hear any wildlife at all. On top of this, there was no hot water in the shower and the shower head didn't spray the water. The drain was also blocked so the whole bathroom floor flooded. On check in, the staff charged a card I used to confirm the booking and would not allow me to pay with cash or a different card. The staff didn't seem to recognise any issue with any of our complaints, unaware there was a problem.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed our stay at Casa Lakyum. It is a real jungle experience, we loved the pool, the views, the hammock at the patio and the sounds of the nature that were constantly coming from the jungle. Before our arrival the hotel helped to organise our transfers too (and the driver Eduardo was fantastic! ).
Cons: Unfortunately the restaurant does not serve any dinner. Also the receptionist wasn't really the chatty type with many recommendations.
6.7 Good
Pros: The steering is beautiful and it’s amazing being at the swimming pool with all the trees around you.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean, eco friendly, understated, charming. Well positioned for the ruins.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's position is just fantastic. Near Palenque city but also near the ruins. It's very easy to catch a collective bus to the ruins and ff you like to walk, you can start on the top, walk down to the lower entrance and from there walk to the hotel. There is a good walking way. Although it is beside the road (separate lane) there is not much traffic on that road and with some luck you see monkeys, buterflies or lizards just beside the road. The hotel is also nice to just spend one day at the pool and relax.
Cons: There is no restaurant service at the hotel but there are restaurants nearby.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful setting with a lovely view, beautiful grounds and tasty food. Also very convenient to reach Palenque archaeological sites.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location and nice comfortable hotel with good facilities
Cons: Nothing
5.8 Okay
Pros: Pool and facilities are nice, good breakfast
Cons: I’m torn on how to rate this hotel. All facilities are good, as is breakfast. I did however have a dreadful experience and would never return. On one hand I recognise the upset was concerning another guest, although the passiveness of the hotel staff can’t go unmentioned. There was a tour group loudly partying and drinking in the adjacent room and one across from me. At 11pm I requested to a male group member to please keep it down a bit as I was trying to sleep. 11:30 no change- I went to reception to request they advise to keep it down. They sent security. Midnight- no change. I went back to reception and requested another room to sleep in. They (quite begrudgingly) allowed it. As I was with security going back to my room, the male member I talked to who was drunk started verbally abusing me saying it was my problem, he has a right to live, how dare I go to reception, stupid b***ch etc in a very aggressive manner. The security guard stood there and did absolutely nothing to intervene. I said to the male guest that he was drunk and would not have a conversation when he behaved this way and closed my door to pack and leave. He was still there as I left and continued with snide comments as I walked away. Again, security did nothing. Where I come from, this behaviour is completely unacceptable, and in my view no guest should be subjected to that as hotel staff stand idly by watching. I’m a solo female traveller and the incident left me feeling rattled, unsafe and uncomfortable. The passiveness of the hotel staff and inability to handle the situation was not appreciated. As an improvement I would suggest curfew hours for quiet time around rooms (eg. between 10pm and 7am) so that all guests can rest adequately if they want to, and there are guidelines for guests to follow. There is karaoke and a bar in which people can go to in the hotel if they want to, so this would not be unreasonable.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Worst pillows in Mexico
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Can’t go wrong with staying here. Location is fantastic and restaurants all around. Taxis are always parked nearby. Staff is also very friendly. You can join tours through the hotel which will take you to Palenque ruins, Misol-hs, Agua Azul, etc which is convenient.
Cons: We found some old nail clippings on our desk. But everything else was clean.

The restaurant is cheap and they make very nice food. You can park the car in the garden. We had hot water to shower. Palenque is easly accessable from this property.
Cons: The accomodation looks better on the pictures. Our room was very simple. I booked it because on the picture I could see that there is mosquito net. ( I am scared of big spiders). Unfortunatelly the installation is not good, so any animal can come in the room so my night was a bit stressfull :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: i loved to be in a jungle! I felt like in a document movie, a lot of trees around, houses had so thin walls that you could feel like you sleep in the nature. At night you can hear noises of the night animals, birds and monkeys. Swimming pool was very nice, you could chill swimming. Place is very close to archeological area
Cons: You are only allowed to eat your own food in the kitchen, what is hidden upstairs and its very narrow and not well equipped. We couldn't eat at the table in front of our cabin. When you leave hotel you can leave your luggage but you have to buy locker for that

Pros: Pretty much everything.
Cons: The restaurant is very open- the one across the road is cosier especially in cool damp weather.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked everything: the little cabanas, the pool, the staff, the location. The howler monkeys in the trees and the Agoutis running around on the property just added to the perfect jungle getaway close to the Mayan ruins of Palenque.

Cons: they demanded half of the money upfront, even though they had a credit card as a collateral and they demanded it 2 weeks after my booking. I dont mind paying up front but that ussualy comes with a discount!
5.0 Okay
Pros: It was within walking distance to square
Cons: Full of soccer teams running and yelling in the halls all day, all nights , every , late , didn’t matter . Staff did nothing to deter if not encouraged the behaviour . Breakfast was continental and too small for a hotel of that size.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It is a very nice hotel, quite new and very clean. I also liked the design in general. It is located right next to a big supermarket and 400 m away from the bus station.
Cons: Be aware that the hotel charges an advance to your credit card after you book. It can be a little loud at night. Especially if children decide to play the marimba standing in the lobby at 11 at night or 7:30 in the morning.

7.0 Good
Pros: The staff was really and nice and helpful, I was also able to check in prior to the official check in time. The surrounding greens are pretty nice and together with the animals there makes for an authentic natural environment.
Cons: As mentioned by other people already, the interior is rather old fashioned. The blinds to the window weren't closing entirely leaving a gap so that people walking by could actually look into my room. I also ordered some food there, however nothing from the menu, just super simple plain rice and chicken without spice as my stomach wasn't doing great. The portion was tiny, the price however pretty big considering how this was the most plain a food can be (cost me around 10 Euros). I walked there from the centre which is fine in general, but had I known that from the street to actually get to the building I would have to walk over a pretty bumpy road, I wouldn't have. My suitcase did not like this long walk over the uneven road.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location and the people are amazing. This place has HEART and you can feel it! Lots of restaurants close by and palenque archeological sight is super close! I actually enjoyed the energy better than Palenque itself. Carlos was even so nice to get me fresh cacao beans from the marker which I had been looking for everywhere in mexico (and surprisingly hard to find). Also the breakfast is amazing and I booked a last minute massage which was in this magical location. Would stay again!
Cons: I like to sleep with my windows open instead of airconditioning or fan. Because there is no screen that was a bit hard. Perhaps an idea for the future :-)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super host and everything was perfect. We liked it very mutch and recomend it for everybudy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a so called auto motel where you park you car in a garage from where you directly step into your room. Our room was spacious with a kingsize bed, jacuzzi, lounge chair and a fridge. Wifi and A/C worked well. The jacuzzi/shower and bedroom is basically in the same space so that is something to take into account if you are travelling with a friend or anyone else than your partner. The hotel has everything you need but the real reason you should stay there is to meet Carlos the owner. He has decades of experience in hospitality and knows exactly what he is doing. He is creating a traveller's haven really close to Palenque. I especially loved the tropical garden and breakfast area (which is super tasty by the way). Because of the low season discount we received Hotel Paraiso Inn had the highest price-quality ratio of all the hotels we stayed in during our 4 week trip in Mexico.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice, big and clean rooms, ideal if you're travelling by car, and a great breakfast. But the best thing was Carlos' incredible hospitality!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Carlos the owner - very charming man who has put a lot of love into this place The breakfast - great coffee, unusual, very fresh sweet bread and the BEST fruit of our entire trip The bed - very large and comfortable Jungle setting
Cons: The water pressure in the shower in the evening was non existent Bit out of town. I was worried about driving back into town for dinner at night, but it was fine
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We liked pretty much everything! Yes. The garden, the remote location in nature, sounds of the jungles and animals around, super friendly and helpful staff, clean room and comfy bed! We also upgraded our room to the one that has a jacuzzi inside, enjoyed it so much. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a quiet place with great service and lots of privacy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Carlos has almost 30 years of hospitality experience and you can feel it from the second you arrive at this cute, jungle-surrounded guesthouse. We didn’t feel like it was a touristy hotel, more of a family run, extremely clean and very neat apartment far away from civilisation. Definitely a great choice for nature lovers and peace seekers.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was just great for us! Carlos was super friendly and helpful. He showed us everything and you could really feel how much passion he has for the amazing area around the hotel. Also the room was really nice and clean. The Breakfast was a good start in the day, especially the regional fruits. Thanks for the good time and kind regards. Elisa and Mirko
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Carlos was awaiting us when we arrived after an 7 hour drive from San Cristobal. And so were the torches and his assistant Trinidad. He showed us the garage and the apartment, which is perfectly clean and complete. In the morning we enjoyed breakfast in the garden, with kolibries and butterflies flying by while we sat down and relaxed. The location is perfect for visiting the ruins and Aluxes which makes a great day in Palenque. I would advise to visit by car, as it’s not located in the centre. But honestly, the centre is nothing much and the surroundings are beautiful and peaceful! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again!
Cons: What’s not to like? Paraiso inn was just perfect for us!

Pros: Sizeable room, good location, welcoming & helpful staff
Cons: Everything needed a bit of TLC & modernisation (of course whilst retaining its quirky charm)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Terrific place to stay. Everything was wonderful, private, secluded, and beautiful. Loved the natural beauty of the property and the rooms were perfectly decorated and very comfortable. All of the staff were top notch, but Gilberto and Misaell were exceptional. The owner is very personable and knowledgeable about the area - took time to talk with guests about the property and its history. Our flight was canceled and they arranged a driver for us for a 10 hour trip. Can’t say enough good things about the property and the people there. Thank you for a wonderful experience! And thank you, Sergio, for that drive to Chichen Itza!
Cons: That we only booked 2 days here. If you are there for the ruins, book an extra day just to hang out on the property. They will take excellent care of you.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Every thing about this place was great and even the owner who told us lots about Mayan history
7.0 Good

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Courteous staff — proactive and helpful but discreet. Helpful owner, excellent restaurant with varied menu. Beautiful pool and grounds.
Cons: Liked everything.
7.0 Good
Pros: One of the very best, swimming pools "in nature" one could ever imagine! several beautiful pools situated in a well planned but natural looking jungle, we heard the howler monkey family and saw many birds! The main welcome structure is a huge Mayan sort of "tower" of reeds and bamboo. The mattress was excellent! my friend and I shared it and it was perfect for the two of use. The shower was BIG and had tons of great hot water and water pressure. Our large room had its own terrace with oversize chairs. It was super super quiet and there are only a few rooms here so it was a restful place to stay. The owner came to talk to us each day at our table and is passionate about the local indigenous culture and monuments. We loved the handmade soap in the bathroom and that a hairdryer was already there we did not have to ask for it. Sparkling clean! The natural part of the premises was so very beautiful! There were some really interesting old woven pieces as the artwork in our room and in the dining and reception that were very nicely chosen, beautiful, ceramics and such. The owner being both German and Italian spoke many languages and the dinner menu included cuisine from these places. We loved the dumplings and ordered them twice at dinner. Very ample breakfast.
Cons: There was one waiter who acted in an exaggerated way in order to ingratiate himself to us and actually stood at our table the last day saying that "this was his last shift" and hint hint we needed to leave him a tip. This was unpleasant. The AC unit when in high was very noisy. The light switches were really confusing and the room was overlit: also the fixtures themselves were all of different style types which broke the overall aesthetic in this hotel. The food was "OK" but a bit expensive we felt. There were no screens so you did not have an option to sleep in the normal night temperature. We did see in the photos when we booked that the place was kind of a Palenque "wonderland" in that there is a fake Palenque style tower on the premises and that the buildings are ornamented heavily with sculpted ornament. Some people might really love this, but as artists we found it a bit kitsch. Also the furniture in general was dark, very heavy in look and "Tiki" in flavor and seemed the size for very tall men, not for women of 5' in height: our bathroom sink was almost at shoulder height.

Before our arrival the hotel helped to organise our transfers too (and the driver Eduardo was fantastic! ).

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's position is just fantastic. Near Palenque city but also near the ruins. It's very easy to catch a collective bus to the ruins and ff you like to walk, you can start on the top, walk down to the lower entrance and from there walk to the hotel. There is a good walking way. Although it is beside the road (separate lane) there is not much traffic on that road and with some luck you see monkeys, buterflies or lizards just beside the road. The hotel is also nice to just spend one day at the pool and relax.
Cons: There is no restaurant service at the hotel but there are restaurants nearby.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful setting with a lovely view, beautiful grounds and tasty food. Also very convenient to reach Palenque archaeological sites.
